Uber whistleblower urges Brussels parliament for stricter lobbying laws


Mark MacGann, the whistleblower behind the Uber Files, earlier this month testified to the Brussels Parliament, arguing that stricter lobbying regulations are needed.

MacGann will also testify to the Dutch and French parliaments on March 8 and 9, respectively. TSN acts a legal counsel for MacGann through its Whistleblower Protection Program. You can read his Brussels testimony here.


European court ruling brings new guidelines for whistleblower protection laws


In a landmark case concerning revelations about accounting firm PwC Luxembourg’s tax avoidance practices, the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the public interest in the LuxLeaks disclosures to the media outweighed any harm done to the firm.

The decision has set new precedents in cases involving whistleblowers. The ruling comes from a lawsuit filed by LuxLeaks whistleblower Raphaël Halet, an ex-employee of the company. The main whistleblower behind the LuxLeaks case, Antoine Deltour, is a board member of TSN.
